Disabled Students Programs and Services (DSPS)

Getting Started

There are 3 easy steps to getting started with DSPS…

STEP 1 – GWC Application. Everyone who is interested in taking classes at Golden West College must first submit an application to the Admissions Office. Applications can be obtained from the following this link: Application to Apply

STEP 2 – New Student Packet. Students are required to complete a DSPS Student Packet. The packet includes the Student Intake form, Students Rights and Responsibilities, and Consent of Release. A copy of your Disability diagnosis is required as well. A DSPS Verification form is provided in the packet.

STEP 3 – Once you have completed the new Student Packet, return the completed Student Packet to DSPS where an appointment will be made with the DSPS Counselor. The counselor will provide the student with information about the college, academic matriculation and classes, transfer and degree requirements, vocational programs, student services, and academic accommodations. Eligibility for services will be determined based on Disability Verification. *Please Note, the Student Packet must be returned to the student DSPS office completed and along with a copy of their disability verification before an appointment can be made.
